A driver, Frank Aneh, was on Wednesday arraigned in a Kado Grade 1 Area Court in Abuja for alleged criminal breach of trust and stealing.

Aneh, 33, of Sauka Village along Airport Road, Abuja was arraigned on a two-count charge of criminal breach of trust and theft of wrist watch.

The Prosecutor, Mrs Judith Obatomi, said that one Paul Akeh of Life Camp in Abuja reported the case at the Life Camp Police Station on Sept. 1.

Obatemi said that Aneh was working for Akeh as a driver and that on Aug. 24, the complainant had given his house key to the accused when he scheduled to travel out of the FCT.

Obatemi alleged that Akeh, subsequently, used the key and criminally opened the complainant’s house, stealing the wrist watch.

She told the court that the offences contravened Sections 322 and 289of the Penal Code.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to charges.

Judge Ahmed Ado granted Akeh bail in the sum of N250, 000 with a surety in like sum.

He ordered that the surety must be a salary earner working in the FCT or any registered cooperative member in the FCT.

The judge adjourned the matter until Oct. 10 for hearing. (NAN)
